APOPKA, Fla. (AP) â€” President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney have one thing in common when it comes to Florida: They're both worried.
Obama has an edge in the state, the contest's biggest battleground prize. But Democrats fear the advantage may be fleeting and fret about how Florida's narrow slice of undecided voters will break. They're also worried that legal battles over state voter laws could cut into the president's support among minorities.
Republicans are concerned that Romney, who is running on the economy, can't close the deal in a state hampered by high unemployment and rampant home foreclosures.
In those ways, Florida is a microcosm of the state of the presidential race across the country. Polls show Obama leading slightly in key states like Florida, as well as nationally.

I could honestly care less who actually wins this election because no matter who wins nothing is going to change. If Obama gets elected we will be wasting our time and money in war. If Romney win we get taxed till there is no end. According to both canidates $250,000 a year is the "middle class" which I don't know about you but I can only count one person that I know that makes that amount of money and he is an engineer.
